In mid May I had my IUD taken out with the hope of getting pregnant soon after that. I haven't had my period since May 24th and all the tests I've taken are negative. My boobs are sore off and on and I have been just waiting for either a postive HPT or my period. Do you have any suggestions? It's been about 2 weeks since I've taken a test.

  • So I looked this cream up and I don't understand how it is supposed to help me. Also, this morning my breasts were SUPER tender, almost like I needed to nurse a baby. And while in the shower my nipples were hard the whole time and it hurt for the water to hit them.

  • My SIL had an IUD, and I was told that you generally need to have it out for at least three months before you're likely to become pregnant again... GL!

  • I had a mirena iud and still got pregnant so it shouldnt take long and from the medical side of me, it is just your body adjusting to the hormonal change more than likely. Try to massage your breast to 'let down' the pressure and it should help, try applying ice packs and trying to have sex making sure not to let hubby rub on them may help as well. The hormone changes can be hard to deal with at first but I hope you end up pregnant quickly! Good luck.
